In a wider bid to support creative and critical engagement in the region, Through Her Lens, a photography exhibition in Sikkim held in collaboration with Zubaan and the Sasakawa Peace Foundation under its Fragrance of Peace project, aims to explore new modes of participation with the audience by exhibiting in communal spaces around Namchi.  

As part of a series of programmes that will be held in Namchi in February 2020, the exhibition and discussion surrounding it will aim to understand the lack of visibility of women photographers in the Sikkim and Darjeeling Hills region, and develop viable strategies to support and facilitate spaces and networks for women interested in pursuing a career in photography.

Women from Sikkim and Darjeeling Hills are invited to submit images for the same. Selected works will be featured at a public exhibition in Namchi from 9-16 February 2020. Both aspiring and professional photographers are welcome to apply. Submissions can be made on either of the two themes, ‘Memory’ and ‘Migration’. For more information, visit this website.

We look forward to your submissions!
